WELCOME TO MONTH 5!
This month we are playing with the mini pieces along with the regular pieces!
You will use 8 diamonds in each size and 4 arcs in each size. This leaves 8 diamond papers in each size - save those for month 10.
You can play with light, medium and dark fabrics to create movement. The mini pieces sew together very quickly, but can be a little more challenging to remove the papers.
- Sew diamonds into sets of 2
- Sew the diamond sets to the arcs so that diamond points face inward. Glue tips so that they do not show
- If you want the negative space in the center to be an “X” fold your background in half both directions to give you guidelines to line up the diamonds. If you want it to be a “+” fold the background diagonal both ways so you can line up the block
- Sew in place using the technique you chose in BOM Month 1
I love seeing your blocks on Karie’s Sewing Spot !! Thank you to everyone who's posting and sharing so others can be inspired.
